Tunisian Crochet Workshop In May

I was approached by Ashla Ward a while ago with the view to having a Tunisian Crochet Workshop Weekend in May. Ashla runs a Knit and Crochet group in NUI Galway and booked me for the workshop. I’m delighted and really look forward to immersing myself in Tunisian Crochet and not least the wilds of […]

Tunisian Cushion Pattern Release

It is InterNational Crochet Month, or InterNatCroMo as it is also known, and I thought it would be appropriate to release a pattern to celebrate. I am therefore delighted to announce the pattern release for the Tunisian Love Heart Cushion. I really enjoyed making the cushion which is worked in pure Icelandic Alafoss Lopi. The […]

Robust Love Hearts

I’m preparing the Tunisian Crochet workshop for Denmark at the end of March and felt I needed to have something new up my sleeve for it. Out came the brutish 10mm hook, the Alafoss Lopi and the love hearts. It is Valentines tomorrow too and my sofa could do with a bit of an “update” […]

Spring-colour Tangle

Spring has definitely sprung. The daffodils are nodding prettily tête-a-tête in my garden-wilderness and the birds are courting and nesting galore. Spring-colour Tangle Spring even found it’s way to my Tunisian hook too. The spring-colour tangle in the picture is a Neck Wedge I had left to it’s own devises for a while and basically […]

March Crochet Class Schedule

March is nigh and my new class schedule is now available. March will be all Tunisian crochet classes. I’m besotted with that technique and look forward to sharing it with others. I found the softest combination of wool in Artesano Alpaca and Schoppel Wolle Pur and  made a pair of fingerless mittens in a spring […]

Tunisian Vest With Sleeves-to-be

I love the texture of Tunisian Crochet and not least the colour options, they are near to endless. A good while back I started this vest in tubular Tunisian Crochet but never really finished it. It is worked in Lett Lopi on hook size 9 to avoid it being too heavy as the fabric becomes […]

Pick Up Your Needles at Rathwood

The weekend is nearing with speed and all the classes for the next Pick Up Your Needles are filling up just nicely although there are still free spaces available in both spinning, felting, knitting and crochet. Are you going to join us for a day of fibre and rocking of wool? You can book your […]

Just One More Row

I have been busy with all sorts of small and large projects that needed to be completed but unfortunately, none of all these projects left me much time to have my hands on the hook although the Dane’s Tunisian Vest is quite attention seeking in that insistent way. I find myself getting to bed later […]

Subliminal Colour Work

I just had a realization. I looked at the picture of the Tunisian piece I am having fun with at the moment and do you know what? The colours are the same as the ones that are in my logo! I completely didn’t see that when I picked the colours for the piece, I just […]

Tunisian Heads Down

Another successful gathering at the work table in The Yarn Room today. They had their heads down in the bright and airy room while cracking the Tunisian code. They worked hard, coffee, tea and cakes were had and they cracked the code completely! YAY! On Friday it’s all about Classical Crochet. I better get the […]
